Supernatural: Breakdown
January 29, 2018 11:11 AM - Season 13, Episode 11 - Subscribe

Sam and Dean help Donna investigate her niece's disappearance and discover a gruesome crime network.

Wasn't sure how much to put into the description without spoiling, so I went with the safest.

DONNA!

I was sure this storyline has been done before, but I must have confused it with other shows. You'd think Supernatural would've done this story a while ago, but nope. It's definitely interesting though. Like the zombies on iZombie needing a legitimate source of brains without going out attacking normal humans. I wonder if there is a huge network for monsters that hunters just aren't aware of. And how much would the British Men of Letters been able to discover and help with if they weren't total assholes.

Also, that just reminded me that we haven't seen jack squat about Asmodeus and Ketch.

"Bring it, Twilight"

Man, poor Doug.

I’m always happy to see Donna - though one of the reasons I love to see her is because of what a ray of sunshine she is, so I’m sorry they gave her a break-up. Still, they didn’t go for Winchester-level angst of Donna having to kill Vampire-Doug or of not saving her niece from torture and death. Are they just getting her freed up from romantic entanglements for the spin-off?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was that. She's presumably gonna move to Jody's town and help mentor the girls.

My girlfriend pointed out that Donna's accent was really played down in this one. I can see why they'd do that, to make the character a little less goofy so she can have more dramatic storylines. But her whole "Yah, you betcha" thing was part of her charm!

Actually, I've kind of forgotten where some of these people are right now. Mary is being tortured in the alt-universe, and Jack is there too, right? But where's Castiel? Is Lucifer still on Earth, without powers? It seems like six months since we've seen some of these people. (And I'm kind of amazed they haven't done more with alt-Bobby!)

Actually both Castiel and Lucifer are captured by Asmodeus, in the dog cages that Crowley used to be in at Hell's Earth HQ *. (which, btw, I don't understand how it's still there given that after the boys raided it last season, the angels should eventually have figured it out and wiped it out by now).

* I'm like super proud that the minute I pulled up the wiki to look this up I started remembering that exact scene before even reading

Wow. I have no memory of that at all. I'm liking this season fine, but Asmodeus has to be their most slow-moving big bad ever. He's like a B-plot baddie who somehow made it to the top. Usually we'd be hearing a lot more apocalypse talk by now!

Because once they built that set, they weren't just gonna junk it!

Speaking of sets, the next X-Files episode looks like it's set on a big rusty hulk of a boat that seems awfully familiar. Somebody in Vancouver is making bank renting out their big junked boat to genre shows!

they made everything centered on Jack, so until he's back, everything's gonna be in a bottleneck, and we'll probably have the plot opened up after midseason break

This episode seemed much darker than usual.
